Average: 5 (1 vote)

At the majestic Castro Theatre, San Francisco Cinematheque presents The Chelsea Girls, Andy Warhol’s sprawling parody of the Hollywood melodrama. Inspired by wide-screen cinema, this enormous double-projected camp classic simultaneously screens scenes from the decadent and desperate downtown lives of Warhol’s art world entourage, in garish color and gritty black and white. Mary Woronov appears in her debut role as Hanoi Hannah, interrogating a humiliated cast of captured GI Joes (portrayed by Ultra Violet and International Velvet) with other outrageously improvised “performances” by Nico, Eric Emerson, Brigid Polk, filmmaker Marie Menken and the one and only Pope Ondine. Soundtrack features a rare live recording of the Velvet Underground.
